Meeting Bingo

Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? What about those long and boring conference calls? Here's a way to change all of that.
1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square. (I find that 5" x 5" is a good size.)
2. Divide the square into columns - five across and five down. That will give you 25 one-inch blocks.

3. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
synergy
strategic fit
core competencies
best practice
bottom line
revisit
expeditious
to tell you the truth (or "the truth is")
24/7
out of the loop
benchmark
value-added
pro-active
win-win
think outside the box
fast track
result-driven
empower (or empowerment)
knowledge based
at the end of the day
touch base
mind-set
client focused
paradigm
game plan
leverage

4. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

5. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout BULLSHIT!

Re: Meeting Bingo

My signature line is still my favorite buzzword bingo sentence. It was actually used in a white paper to describe a product.

No my company would not use the words and even my group (at a different company) follows those words with a snicker or sneer
